MLK a Republican?

Lisa Falkenberg of the Houston Chronicle has an opinion piece in the Houston Chronicle regarding the billboards in Houston declaring Martin Luther King was a republican.

Read the article and of course the whole ad is painted as nonsense. However the dirty little secret is that there is some truth to this. Let's review some facts shall we?

It was the democratic party who attempted to filibuster the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

In cities with a large black population that live in poverty and crime, which political party rules it? That's right! Democratic!
